I’m at the airport in Seattle. I had a quick end-of-year trip.
As I sit awaiting my flight home, I can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of humility. These past 20+ months have been so hard. Crazy hard. The stories of struggle from the people we have been privileged to serve in Perú are overwhelming.
The pandemic has disproportionately impacted the lives of people living in the experience of poverty. So much has changed. So many inconveniences and nuances have become impenetrable barriers. It is so humbling. There are times when it feels overwhelming.
Then I remember all of you—the hundreds of people who help make our organization a success. Your generosity renews me. It inspires me to keep going.
We will welcome a new year in a few hours—a whole new set of possibilities. No one knows what the pandemic will do in 2022. There are so many question marks that hang over the next few months. So much uncertainty. It is comforting to know we are in this together. It is humbling.
Here’s to a fantastic 2022. A year of significant change and opportunity. A year of health, hope, home, and purpose for everyone.
Thank you for your support.
